rg20th getting complaints...=/
so, currently, in my band, i am using a marshall mg100dfx, the 100 watt combo as the head on a randall cab...im using a metal zone and my 20thrg...a few people have complained that its too grainy, specifically when i hold an octave chord past the 12th marker..and other such things..anyways, i was thinking this is due to the amp or possibly the distortion, and the eq. anyone with a lot of experience have any suggestions? or possible suggestions with more info given by me?
the other guitarist seems stuck that its the 20th thats too grainy
i also find it ironic that, the other guitarist, is using a yamaha rgx, through a b-52 half-stack and metal zone...and his is a lot more grainy than mine...i dont like the way his guitar sounds(he also gets a lot of feedback)...im not entirely sure what the deal is, imo my set-up sounds better. but ofcourse we all have different ears n such.
also, they have deamed me to be lead guitar, since i have more lead parts. i honestly dont care about a label(i would honestly prefer that label taken off), but seems to me whoever is playing more lead parts should be eq-d more so to be heard when he plays those parts...and the other guitarist is really high end, very little bass.
they had a friend come in when i wasnt there, to eq the guitars and bass....when i got back my guitar sounded horrible, the bass was all the way up on the metal zone and the amp, and almost no highs. i got that incredibly low sound while palm muting that when everyone played i couldnt make out what i was doing...since then ive turned the bass down and eq-d it all decently even. yet everyone still tends to not hear some leads i play; as well as me. unless i turn it up to where i can hear both guitars fine...but usually the other guitarist turns me down or himself up..
i think my sound is fine, i dont like the amp, i have tried out some tube amps and those sound incredibly better...but im not too sure how they would sound turned up to jam n such...
the guys have even suggested to me to try a different guitar, and to get a new amp...as if that would fix the sound entirely...the other guitarist even 'suggested' i try his epiphone lp next time...is there a problem with me not wanting to...i am way more comfortable playin my rg, if i play the lp it will change my playing, its a different scale different feel. a feel i dont prefer. if its a real problem i can always change pickups, or use a different rg with different pups...
any suggestions? new amp, new pups, mess wit the eq, tell the other guy his **** needs to be upgraded too...or anything else???
sorry for the long read
